Nourished By Time // Hand On Me
After releasing one of the best albums of 2023, Erotic Probiotic 2, Baltimore’s Nourished By Time has officially signed with XL Recordings and – if ‘Hand On Me’ is anything to go by – this is going to be one hell of a fruitful endeavour.

A Place To Bury Strangers // Change Your God
From new beginnings, to bone fide stalwarts. The seductive ‘Change Your God’ arrives via A Place To Bury Strangers’ new run of 7″ singles.

Vegyn // A Dream Goes On Forever (ft. John Glacier)
History tells us that good things happen when Vegyn and John Glacier team up, and ‘A Dream Goes On Forever’ does nothing to buck that trend. It’s a busy week for Glacier, whose Like A Ribbon EP is out today.

Seafood Sam // Can’t Take the Hood to Heaven
Smokey Robinson‘s lounge percussion, Scott Walker‘s sweeping strings and Thundercat‘s buoyant harmonies collude to make ‘Can’t Take the Hood to Heaven’ the coolest track you’re gunna hear this week. New album¬†Standing On Giant Shoulders comes out in April.

Kneecap // Sick in the Head
Ireland is producing some of the most vital new music around right now, thanks in no small part to Kneecap. The trio’s Toddla T-produced debut album, Fine Art, is released in June courtesy of Heavenly Recordings.

No Windows // Fibbs
Scottish youngsters Morgan Morris and Verity Slangen have a knack for crafting songs way beyond their years, with the new Fat Possum signees turning heads on both sides of the Atlantic.
